# Installation Process
boot it first time as live session it was working good, after the installation it was working super fast really good.
after the installation it boot super fast, really impressed with booting time about 9 second booting time at first time booting, usually any operating system after the installation it boot really quick but after the installing any extra application you their will be some lagging time to boot up.
Their is not a big difference between Beta 1 and Beta 2 themes, both of them looks the same but at bug report their a lot of reported bugs on radiance theme fixed on ubuntu 10.04 beta2
same main installed packages for applications.
Yahoo still the default search engine on firefox instead of Google search engine. with firefox version 3.6.3, it’s up to you can change the search engine later firefox options.
using last version of Gnome so far ” Gnome 2.30″ , Linux kernel v 2.6.32
security issues fixed, improvement on ubuntu one, ubuntu enterprise cloud, new default open source driver for nvidia hardware
I really like the new version of nautilus comes with Gnome 2.30 if you are not familiar with nautilus and gnome 2.30 visit this link
really like the splitting view on windows, split view come really handy on to open to directory side by side with difference icon view really good.
To activate split mode on opened windows press F3 or go to view menu and select it.
also you can drag and drop folders and files split view.
same new features included with ubuntu 10.04 beta 2 with menus and right click menu for copying files to and moving to.
